My husband and I met with two old friends for an "end of year" lunch at the Café Beau Rivage. We really enjoyed it. The tables are well spaced, the service was impeccable and the view, over gardens to the lake, lovely. The food was extremely good!

Although there was an excellent 3 course menu on offer (58frs) we all ordered the same thing - filets de perche from the lake. These were delicious, and beautifully presented, with nice vegetables and delicious pommes frites. For dessert we were invited to choose from a trolley. Great selection and tasty desserts. Our waiter was delightful and was always on hand to bring whatever we needed...

The Beau Rivage is a 5 star hotel, conveniently located on the lakefront in Ouchy. Although we were not overly impressed when we stayed at the hotel (several years ago) I have to say that each time we have eaten at the Café Beau Rivage we have really liked the meal. And I suppose we have eaten there, over the years, around 15 times!

Staying at the beau rivage and though I would try this out - it was pretty good, but pricey.

I had what I thought was a gambas salad, but turned out to be a gambas sort of soup - I wasn't quite sure how to eat it so used knife, fork and spoon, but I have to say it was pretty spectacular. Also had the lamb which was very nicely done and a jus that was to die for.

For dessert I had a very nice selection of sorbets - very nice they were too.

Wine by the glass started off pretty good with a glass of bollinger and then a French red that was a little overpriced for what it was. I was surprised not to see a dessert wine offered on either the dessert menu, or the wine by the glass menu, but when I asked they served me a local swiss dessert wine. It was just ok - a little too warm for my liking.

So overall a pretty good restaurant - a little on the pricey side, but I'm learning that all of Switzerland seems to be like that.

Small note - while a brasserie - I did notice that there were few men without jackets so it was a bit more formal than I expected. Not to worry though. Nobody complained!

Located on the ground floor of the fabulous Beau-Rivage Hotel, the restaurant offers casual perfection, crisp service, and up-beat fun crowd, and superb food. Unlike other good restaurants in the area - the prices are within reach of mere mortals.
